I shared a great article a few months ago about what trees NOT to grow in your yard and I actually have had a lot of positive response from people who have thanked me for the info as they were going to plant some of the trees on the list.
I did some more digging (no pun intended) and actually found a really cool article on 13 trees you SHOULD plant in your yard! I know there are more than 13 trees you could plant but these trees are known for their carbon storing abilities plus other benefits for the environment. Check them out and maybe plant some too.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
